New, FREE E-Book is Out!
written by sean hyson
I haven’t had much of a life for the past year.
In fact, I’ve been one of the most boring people I know. That’s because I’ve spent nearly all my free time researching, writing, and polishing my new e-book—2012 Buyer’s Guide to the Best Training and Nutrition Programs. And like a schmuck, I’m giving it away free.
Seriously, it’s been rough. I worked hard. Nights. Weekends. Holidays. But I wanted to provide you, my readers (and anyone else who cares to listen), with something you couldn’t get from any other source. No doubt you’re well aware of the myriad fitness books and e-books on the market, and you’ve probably wondered whom the people are who wrote them and if their content is any good.
I’ve taken the liberty of figuring that out for you.
Look, I’ve been writing about fitness for almost a decade. I’m the Group Training Director for Muscle&Fitness and Men’s Fitness. I’m also a C.S.C.S., gym rat, and I’ve guinea pigged myself on scores of workout and diet plans. At this point, I have a pretty good handle on what works and what doesn’t, and what you need to know about any particular program before you try it (or buy it).
I read through tons of material and selected my favorite stuff—products from the big name fitness personalities you’ve heard of that all offer a ton of value.
The question then becomes, ”Which one is right for you?”
To answer that, my book gives you the following:
In-depth summaries of 17 different products
What I like about them (the “pros”) and what I think you should consider before investing your time and money (possible “cons”)
My personal experience with the plan, if I had one
A bio of the person who created the program
A link to buy the product
And it’s yours for free. I’d rather build my name and my website traffic than make a few dollars at their expense, so take it as a gift and spread the word.
To be totally honest, this was a risky project to put together. I told the trainers/coaches/nutritionists whose products I reviewed that they were being included and gave them my unvarnished opinion on what I thought of their stuff. What I said wasn’t all positive, and some of them didn’t like it.
My job at the magazines requires me to maintain integrity. While I’ve been around a while and have become friendly with experts like Jason Ferruggia, Alwyn Cosgrove, and Kiefer, friendship and politeness has never prevented me from being an honest journalist. I can’t afford to play favorites. If there are flaws in their programs, or if something is unexplained, unclear, or unproven, I speak up about it. You’ll see this in the book.
Some of these issues include:
Exercises/workouts that aren’t doable in a busy commercial gym
Poorly explained directions and typos
Disproven information or fitness myths
Training that is too intense or demanding for the average trainee
On the other hand, some of these experts have embraced what I’ve done. John Romaniello of Roman Fitness Systems plans to use my review to REVISE and IMPROVE his product, and then put it on sale again. Talk about a win-win!
Whether you choose to buy any of these products is none of my business. At the very least, I hope I can demystify them for you, answer some longstanding questions you may have had, and broaden your perspective on training and nutrition altogether.
Consider this is your summer reading list.
